Win or Die
Lord Commander of the Kingsguard
It is the sworn duty of the Lord Commander of the Kingsguard to personally oversee all decisions relating to the personal safety of the King and his family (to the extent the King demands). The Lord Commander assumes partial control of the city’s garrison for the defense of the Red Keep in the event of an assault upon King’s Landing.
The Lord Commander’s resources beyond the Kingsguard may be redirected by the Hand, but the Hand may never command him or any other Kingsguard except when the King specifically allows this.
